How to Recycle Electronics This Holiday Season

KANSAS CITY, MO--(Marketwire - December 15, 2010) - Brad Roderick, executive vice president of InkCycle, a Kansas City company with a recycled line of ink and toner cartridges known as grenk, recently reviewed the importance of recycling electronics this holiday season www.grenkblog.com.

According to an article from http://www.thedailygreen.com, it is important to recycle old electronics this holiday, considering that 20 to 50 million tons of electronic waste is discarded globally every year. The article states that if all that "e-rubbish" were put into containers on a train it would go once around the world. E-waste is the fastest growing component of the municipal solid waste stream, and currently makes up 5 percent of all municipal solid waste (http://www.thedailygreen.com/green-homes/latest/computer-recycling-electronics-recycling-461219).

Roderick said that this holiday, many people will be receiving new electronic gadgets. "It is vital that people understand why it is important to recycle as well as how to recycle electronics properly. According to thedailygreen.com, The Consumer Electronics Association, which represents electronics manufacturers, encourages people to recycle their e-waste, and has set up a handy website to make the process simple. Visit mygreenelectronics.org, where you can search for local recycling drop-off points by zip code and product category. You'll also find tips and information about electronics recycling, and a cool energy calculator that will show you how much juice each product uses. This would be a great tool to utilize, especially during the holidays," said Roderick.
